Grilled Angel Food Cake w/ Strawberry Sauce

Recipe from mayoclinic.com

Delicious! Typically I don't really like cake - but I love Angel Food Cake. It's so light and airy - and nothing goes better with it than strawberries. :)

The original recipe calls for rhubarb as well, but we couldn't find it anywhere. We just used additional strawberries and cut way back on the sugar.

2 1/4 c strawberries, chopped
Less than 1/4 c sugar
6 T water
1 3/4 t vanilla
1/8 t cinnamon (maybe use a bit more, I didn't taste this at all)
1 prepared angel food cake, cut into 6 slices
3/4 c reduced fat whipped topping

Heat your grill to high heat. Lightly coat the grill rack with cooking spray or oil and make sure the rack is 4-6 inches away from heat source.

For the sauce, combine the strawberries, water, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until just boiling, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Meanwhile, place the angel food cake slices on the grill. Grill each side until it turns a nice golden brown, about 1-3 minutes.

Place cake slices in separate bowls, cover in strawberry sauce and add a small scoop of whipped topping.
